Introduction
To achieve the maximum benefit from your blood pressure monitor, we recommend that you
first consult with your physician or trained healthcare professional.
Thank you for purchasing a MABIS Semi-Automatic Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. With
proper care and use, your monitor will provide you with many years of reliable readings.
The method of measurement that your Semi-Automatic Monitor uses is called the oscillometric
method. The monitor detects your bloodʼs movement through the artery in your arm and
converts the movements into a digital reading. The oscillometric method does not require a
stethoscope, making the monitor easy to use.
Blood pressure readings determined with this device are equivalent to measurements
obtained by a trained observer using the cuff/stethoscope auscultation method, within the
limits prescribed by the American National Standard for Electronic or Automated
Sphygmomanometers.

Whether or not you experience “White Coat Syndrome”, home blood pressure monitoring
provides:
1) The opportunity to supplement your physicianʼs office measurements.
2) An accurate indication of any change.
3) A record to assist your physician in evaluating your health and making important
decisions.
4) Consistent, daily measurements of your blood pressure.
General Blood Pressure Information
in
L /m
PU
Many people experience “White Coat Syndrome”, which is a temporary elevation of blood
pressure during a visit at their physicianʼs office. Although only temporary, it can cause
blood pressure to rise and give a false indication of a personʼs true blood pressure.
NOTE: Variations in your individual readings should only be interpreted by your physician or
trained healthcare professional.

Why Monitor Your Blood Pressure at Home?
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the pressure that is exerted by blood flowing against the walls of the blood
vessels throughout your body.
Your heart, which is the center of the circulatory system, provides the force for the blood to flow
or circulate. When your heart contracts or beats, the blood is forced through the blood vessels
increasing the pressure. This is the highest pressure in the cycle or what is referred to as
SYSTOLIC blood pressure. In between beats, your heart relaxes and your blood pressure
decreases. This is referred to as DIASTOLIC blood pressure.
This complete series of events, which occurs in a single heartbeat, is known as the CARDIAC
CYCLE.
Your MABIS Semi-Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor will automatically read your blood pressure and display both systolic and diastolic readings on the screen. Your systolic will be positioned as the upper number and the diastolic reading will be the lower number.
/
120 80
(systolic)
–5–
(diastolic)
Blood pressure is measured in millimeters (mm) of mercury (Hg) and is generally recorded
with the systolic pressure (120) listed first and the diastolic pressure (80) listed second. The
numbers are typically separated by a slash mark (/) as shown.
Both pressure readings, the SYSTOLIC and DIASTOLIC, are necessary for a physician to
evaluate the status of a patientʼs blood pressure.
Please contact your physician for specific information regarding your own blood pressure.
Variations in Blood Pressure
Blood pressure is influenced by many factors and can change from moment to moment.
Normally, blood pressure is lowest during sleeping periods and rises during the day. The
graph below represents variations in blood pressure shown over a day with measurements
taken every 5 minutes.
The dotted line represents the sleep
period. The rise in blood pressure at
1 p.m. (A in the graph) corresponds
to a stressful occurrence and at
7 p.m. (B in the graph) a period of
exercise.
What Influences Blood Pressure?
Many factors such as genetics, age, sex, altitude, physical activity, anxiety, muscular
development, certain medications or even the time of day can influence blood pressure.
Influences such as sleep or relaxation decrease blood pressure, while anxiety or exercise
increase blood pressure.
WHO Blood Pressure Classifications
Standards for assessment of high or low blood pressure have been established by the
World Health Organization (WHO) as shown on the following chart:

Important Information Before Use
1.
Blood pressure readings should be interpreted by a physician or trained healthcare
professional, who is familiar with your medical history.
3.
Avoid smoking, eating, taking medication, alcohol consumption or physical activity 30
minutes prior to taking a reading. If you are exhibiting signs of stress, avoid taking your
measurement until the feeling subsides.
2.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Perform your measurement in a quiet place. You should be seated and relaxed.
Rest 15 minutes prior to taking a reading.
Remove any constrictive clothing or jewelry that may interfere with the cuff placement.
Keep the monitor stable during measurements. Remain still; do not talk during
measurements.
Record your daily readings on the chart provided.
Take your readings at the same time, each day (or as recommended by your physician).
Wait a minimum of 15 minutes between readings. The wait time may vary depending on
individual physiological characteristics.
10. This device is intended for adult use.
11. The inflation or deflation process can be stopped by pressing the Release button.

appear on the display, Fig. 1.
NOTE: Please consult with your physician or trained
healthcare professional for further information regarding an
irregular heartbeat and if this symbol appears frequently at

Applying Your Blood Pressure Cuff
Before applying your blood pressure cuff, be sure you have selected the appropriate cuff:
Small Adult Cuff fits arm circumference 8-5/8” - 11-3/4” (22-30 cm)
Adult Cuff fits arm circumference 11-3/4” - 16-1/2” (30-42 cm)
Large Adult Cuff fits arm circumference 16-1/2” - 18-7/8” (42-48 cm)
NOTE: If for any reason you are unable to or should not use
your left arm, please modify the following instructions and
apply the cuff to your right arm. Your physician can tell you
which arm is best for you to use.
8. The cuff should fit comfortably, yet snugly around your
arm. You should be able to insert two fingers between your
arm and the cuff.
1. Position the monitor on a flat, stable surface with the digital
display panel in view. Insert the cuff tubing connector into the
left side of the monitor, Fig. 1.
2. Rest your elbow on a solid surface with your palm facing
upward. Elevate your arm so that the cuff is at the same level as
your heart, Fig. 2. Relax your left hand.
3.
Press the POWER Button again to turn the unit on.

4. This unit will run a self-test, Fig. 3, and show the last measured reading, Fig. 4, or if
there is no previous measurement, “0”
as shown in Fig. 5.
5. When the display appears as shown,
Fig. 6, the monitor is ready.
Note: If a downward arrow ( )
flashes, there is air remaining in the
cuff. The air will be released by the
Fig. 3

Fig. 4
“Automatic Electronic Air Release Valve” until “0” appears on the display. To release the
air quickly press the release button.
6. Using your right hand, squeeze and
release the inflation bulb at a steady pace. The inflation pressure must
be 50-60 mmHg above your normal systolic pressure. If the pressure in
the cuff is insufficient, an upward arrow ( ) will flash. Continue to steadily
inflate the cuff to the proper level. Once the unit beeps, stop inflating the
cuff. The unit will automatically begin to deflate.
